  Atthis - LoveToKnow Watches
ATTHIS (an adjective meaning " Attic "), the name given to a monograph or special treatise on the religious and political history, antiquities and topography of Attica and Athens.
During the 4th and 3rd centuries B.C., a class of writers arose, who, making these subjects their particular study, were called atthidographi, or compilers of atthides.

 The Rift Or Sapho was a Right-on Surfer Chick by Anima--Chapters 3-4
Atthis, whose heart had not stopped pounding since Xena’s first words to her, was practically dizzy with want, but her survival instincts got the better of her and she stepped aside to let the two pass.
Atthis watched them leave, making their way down the path that would lead to their cottage, to the bed they would make love in, and the tall anguished blonde nearly bit her lip in two.
Atthis could do little more than watch with frenzied eyes; the rest of her seemed to be in a sort of paralysis.

Kleidemos, in Book I of his Atthis, says that it was in (the deme) Melite.
80) In the first book of the Atthis Kleidemos speaks of the phyle of mageiroi which has the timé of demiourgikos; and it was their business to assemble the entire people.

 Erechtheus - LoveToKnow Watches
According to Homer, who knows nothing of Erichthonius, he was the son of Aroura (Earth), brought up by Athena, with whom his story is closely connected.
In the later story, Erichthonius (son of Hephaestus and Atthis or Athena herself) was handed over by Athena to the three daughters of Cecrops - Aglauros (or Agraulos), Hen and.
Pandrosos - in a chest, which they were 'rbidden to open.

 Was Hellanikos the First Chronicler of Athens?
In 1893, Wilamowitz argued that the author of the Athenaion Politeia, whom he took to be Aristotle, drew his knowledge of Athenian history chiefly from local chronicles, called Atthides(singular Atthis), which related the history and antiquities of the Athenian state in strict annalistic sequence[2] and which survive today in small fragments.
On the basis of this testimony, Jacoby postulated an equation between Atthis and chronicle and inferred, on the strength of title alone, that the first chronicle of Athens was the Atthis of Hellanikos.
Philochoros' is the only Atthis which Dionysios cites, and it is even possible (albeit unprovable) that he based his understanding of the less well-known Atthides, including that of Hellanikos, on secondary information.

 Athens, Greek Mythology Link.
And he was childless, so Cranaus, another "son of the soil" [see AUTOCHTHONOUS] but in reality the most powerful of the Athenians, came to the throne, and it was during his reign that The Flood in the age of Deucalion 1 took place.
When Atthis died in her youth, Cranaus called the country Atthis after her.
The parentage of Erichthonius 2 [see also Envy] is uncertain: it has been said that he is the son either of Hephaestus and Atthis, or of Hephaestus and Athena, or of Hephaestus and Gaia, and he also has been called a "son of the soil" [see AUTOCHTHONOUS].

 Hellanikos of Lesbos
Hellanikos, in Book II of his Atthis, says that it was named after a certain King Mounychos, son of Pantakles.
Alope: Lykourgos in the speech peri tes hiereias [F 33 Blass] the daughter of Kerkyon, whose son by Poseidon is Hippothoon, the eponym of the Hippothontis, as Hellanikos says in Book II of his Atthis, and Euripides in his play of that name, and Deioarchos in the lawsuit with the Phalerians.
Hierophantes: Hyperides says somewhere, "I am married to the daughter neither of a Torchbearer nor a Hierophant." Deinarchos, in the lawsuit with the Krokonidoi, says that the first hierophant was so called because he revealed the sacred affairs as he arrived back from a war.

 Greek and Roman Women
In a lyric poem (96), Sappho reminds a friend, Atthis, of a woman who has gone far away but is represented as remembering Atthis with desire.
The two are reunited imaginatively in the poet's recalling their past experiences and in her envisioning the woman's desire for Atthis.
The two are drawn together furthermore through the comparison of the woman to the moon whose light spreads over the sea and fields: the light shines imagistically from the woman to Atthis over the territory that separates them.

 Exchange: L. Porciani and C.J. Joyce
Professor Porciani (hereafter 'Porciani'), who does not accept my thesis that the Atthis of Hellanikos was not a chronicle, raises objections both to my interpretation of key passages in the ancient texts and to other, more technical, details in my presentation, which, he feels, invalidate my general case.
Porciani regards it as obvious from FGrHist 323a F 25 that the schematic rubric of Hellanikos' Atthis was annalistic.
In the case of the Atthis, on the other hand, this is by no means clear, and Jacoby's grounds for differentiating the Atthis from the ethnographic/periegetic tradition as represented by the other works are slender.
